Piaf en Rose. . .
For all those Edith Piaf fans out there, Carolyn Burke's new biography, No Regrets has just been published. It's quite the life! I'd also like to recommend Martha Wainwright's amazing collection of Piaf songs. What I love about this CD is that Wainwright has stayed away from the big hits and chosen a lot of songs that normally don't get covered. And she can belt them out with all the emotional passion of Piaf herself - it's really a terrific album.
